“When your body looks like a dirtbag’s binder from seventh grade metal shop, it doesn’t bode well for your character” – Tina Fey -Saturday Night Live
Is that fair? Can you jump to conclusions about someone’s character just because they’re heavily tattooed?
Some tattooed women say it happens.
The women are professionals, wives, and moms, but they say people often jump to conclusions about them based upon their appearance.
Forum reporter Heidi Shaffer explores this topic in Sunday’s Forum.
She visits with Laura Sefkow, the co-owner of Addictions in Fargo. She also interviewed a female tattoo artist, tattoo shop owner, tattooed mom and a tattooed district court judge. She’ll look into whether a stigma still surrounds tattooed women.
In this video Laura gets her photo shot for Sunday’s story and she explains why she chooses to get tattoos.
